3 Fun Hats For Summer

When you’re not as meticulous with the sunscreen applications as you should be, just remember to throw on a hat.

Not all skin is the same. And the delicate skin on your face is especially susceptible to harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays because it gets a lot of sun exposure, according to the American Cancer Society.

Wearing stylish summer hats is an an easy way to protect your skin. Check out my favorite hats for summer.

Floppy hats

These hats are the ultimate beachwear accessory. Plus the wider brimmed ones keep sun off your neck and shoulders, as well as your face.

The elegant look of this wide brimmed floppy hat makes me feel like it should be perched on the head of a Southern belle while she watches the Kentucky Derby. But it’s also perfect for lounging by the pool. I like the classic, simple design. This hat also comes in a light straw color and is only $7 from Forever 21.

Cowboy hats

What kind of midwesterner would I be if I didn’t add a cowboy hat to my list of favorites? I’m not saying you should go all out and complete the outfit with distressed cowboy boots and a button down shirt tied up to reveal your belly button, but a simple cowboy hat can still be fashionable.

Not all cowboy hats have to look masculine, as this über-feminine hat shows. The delicate cutouts and floppy structure scream “girly.” Wear this flirty cowboy hat to the beach. This hat is $34 from Urban Outfitters.

Military caps

Lightweight canvas caps are the ultimate versatile hats for summer. Pull one over your beach hair or wear one to an outdoor get-together to add a little fun to your outfit.
